Any reason to need bearing spacers if so does anyone know the exact measurements for spacers in this setup. I want to be as precise as possible.

Thanks.

If you are skating bowls and need more tension on the axles to prevent bending, you might need spacers, but normally they are not needed. Turn the axle nuts down to snug then back off 1/2 turn exactly. Backing off 1/2 turn allows the balls to run on the bottoms of the races without putting too much pressure toward the sides of the races.

No bowls. But I do some tricks on the sides of my wheels.

Spacer length is determined by wheel dimensions, and the dimensions are not necessarily consistent from wheel to wheel.
My opinion is: To use spacers correctly you need precision measuring equipment (depth micrometer and caliper) and a lathe.
Chances are off-the-shelf spacers won't fit very well.
